[movies]Einstein Passes Tests by NASA's Gravity Probe B
NASA's Gravity Probe B (GP-B) spacecraft has confirmed two key predictions derived from Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. Launched in 2004, GP-B was designed to test Einstein using four ultra-precise gyroscopes to measure the hypothesized geodetic effect, which is the warping of space and time around a gravitational body, and frame-dragging, which is the amount a spinning object pulls space and time with it as it rotates...

This research program has focused on developing tools and techniques that can automate the process of testing and troubleshooting complex control systems that are implemented using an autocoder. Significant increases in software complexity and sophistication have made software more difficult to test and trouble-shoot. Historically, the cost of debugging has been the most time-consuming and expensive aspect of large-scale software development...
